GENE SIMMONS: Lends His Vocal Stylings
Gene Simmons has narrated a hip-hop documentary.
Obviously you don't associate Gene Simmons and hip-hop, but that hasn't stopped him from being part of a film about that genre.
Simmons is featured in and narrates Sample This, a documentary about how DJ Kool Herc took the percussion breaks from an obscure album, Apache by Michael Viner's Incredible Bongo Band, and extended them by playing them back-to-back. "Apache" became one of the most sampled tracks and is noted as one of the most influential records in the history of hip-hop, according to the documentary.
The film debuted earlier this week at the Austin Film Festival.
